Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
This bulletin board is to be used exclusively by people with post
traumatic stress disorder or have traits of ptsd. This is a safe
place where anyone with this disorder can say what they feel and
not be criticized. This is a place to be accepted for who we are,
right where we are, wherever we are in our recovery. Welcome!
This is not a place for families or friends of a person
with PTSD. I have provided your own bulletin
Suicidal ideation and discussions of suicide are permitted
as long as you are not at immediate risk. Thoughts of suicide are
normal for may of us as we suffer depression, etc. We need to discuss
these things openly.
However, anyone who is actively suicidal (i.e.
at risk) is not permitted into the room as they are encouraged to
call 911 immediately. I have written a suicide crisis
intervention page for you including many resources here.
You are welcome back into the bulletin board after
you have taken the steps necessary to save your life.
Discussion of self-mutilation or self-harm can be
discussed, again as long as you mention it in your subject. Discussion
of these topics can be a trigger for some people so we need to protect
everyone on this board. If you feel you may be triggered in anyway
by the subject matter, wait until you are able to handle that subject.
Self-destructive behavior (speeding, shop-lifting,
criminal behavior, etc.) again are permitted with the subject put
in the subject line.
No arguments are permitted on this bulletin board.
It is fine to say you disagree with someone and why, but it is not
appropriate to rage. This is not the place to rage. This is the
place to discuss your rages.
I encourage people to make friends with people you feel
safe with. You might want to exchange email addresses.
Please feel free to open up and let it out...let it all
out. This board is extremely confidential and you will find that you
are not alone and that many people cry the same tears.
