    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    will go to bed soon and will see how i feel in morning. my t said to me i don't mean to be mean but well let me tell you my own story. so she talks about her pain and her pain pills that she hated to take. and from the gist of the story i felt like what she was telling me is that i try to gain attention from my physical problems. NOT TRUE! but i will admit I'm a complainer!
    bad habit.
    anyway its been real hard not to sh or drink tonight. husband wants to go a movie sunday and i'm freaked because of the aurora theater shootings. i don't want to go so i'm hoping nothing will be on that he wants to see at the time he wants to see it.
    so nerved out about so much stuff this afternoon and tonight. i've been getting manicy in the mornings and then come night time i crash.
    and also this cac T on my step two (off aa for sh) said that were my goals realistic. hell yes. So i'm very sad and very sleepy and my husband is sleeping next to me so goodnight i gotta wake him up and he's staying next to me (i thnnk?) so i don' tsh.

    I love how T's judge us, instead of help. I hope you print this off & show it to her. Usually if you call them on it, they'll say I didn't mean that... At least if you print it for her she can see how her comments were perceived.

    I hope you get a good night's sleep.

    BB,

    I hope you charge your T, for her using you for her therapy! Just what you need, to sit and listen to her issues... NOT!

    I'm with Kate_Te, Just love how we are judged by those who are supposed to be there to help us. Definately, do not let her off the hook. Do as Kate_Te said...

    Keep us posted.

    she's a recovering alcoholic guys. and she uses her stories so she can show me her experience strength and hope is what i guess but sometimes i feel like what you said.
    I'm so depressed. I want to do something desperate but we're celebrating my daughters birthday tonight and in an hour i'll be at the salon wiht her doing my nails and peds.
    holy cow.......oct 20 last year i attempted suicide and drove myself to er after od and they had me drink charcoal. everyones always said how awful that was and it was no big deal! i chugged it! its a miracle drug really! i'm sad because they found a 10 year olds body dismemebered here in a nptjher suburb up north from me she's been missing since oct 5. i'm really really upset about this and can't quit crying.
    it brings back to many memories. and i'm 10 all over again

    BB,

    Regardless of whether or not she is a recovering alcoholic, her methods are not working for you and it is unprofessional of her to be using you for her own therapy under the guise of showing you hope and strength from her experiences in life.

    I heard about that poor child on the news today. I pray she did not suffer and I send prayers to her family. I hear you about being 10 all over again... It's okay to cry and be upset over this but try to breathe and focus on things in the present, colors, sounds, shapes, your daughters b'day...

    ((((((((((((((((((((((TRIGGER PART))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    I'd rather have the charcoal then the tube. I have had both. Being Bulemic the Charcoal was as you stated: "no big deal."

    I am so happy that you did not succeed one year ago. Otherwise, I would not be chatting with you.

    You know I know about sharing, but you should still print off this post just so she knows how her words effect you! People don't perceive things the same way and often don't realize how their words are perceived by others. As a therapist she should know how you are reacting to her words.
    I am so happy that you didn't succeed last October 20...I never would have gotten to know you. A Mani/Pedi with your daughter sounds like the perfect thing to get your mind off of the news.

    sounds like you had a nice day. try to concentrate on the positives. I think tonight sounds like a warm blanket, cup of hot cocoa and a good movie night! Stay safe please.

    hi there bubbles, i dont know a lot about therapy/counseling, but it does seem a little odd that she told u about that. i mean, i guess it is cool if a T opens up and shares a little bit about where they are coming from. in fact, that might even add to their credibility as a professional. however, if info is shared for the reason of making it seem like they had it worse that you (or something) then that is whack in not appropriate.

    just my thoughts )
