  1. It sounds so great, but it's impossible in italy.

  2. Anyone will tell you here the only way to to stop is by not doing it. People take many path to sobriety and whatever works, works. You are not alone. So many of us have experienced this. I now see my addiction as resilience and the will to live and survive the pain even though inadvertently it kills you. You don't feel whole or you want to escape the reality/ your mind/what you feel/pain etc and for some it's unbearable. There is something to be said about this need to soothe so why and from what. If you go searching, you will find it. Hugs.

  3. I worried because I'm 4 months clean from meth but still have that unmotivated and empty feeling, though things are getting better. I'm exercising alot and eating healthy. When will it get better?

  4. My personal opinion but I found recovering from drugs is easier than recovering from pain/trauma which was the cause. Feels like drugs were just the many symptoms of a broken mind. Understanding and healing (whatever can be healed) takes a while. Different things help different people. You will find yours. Give it time, it's still fresh.

  5. This is something I struggled with a lot. I have been sober from heroin and other stuff for 12/ 13 years. For the past 5 years, I smoked weed periodically when things got too unmanageable for me. I have Cptsd and have done therapies, cpt etc. I really do understand my trauma brain lot better now. PTSD and ADHD present themselves so similarly, it's very easy to be misdiagnosed for each other. Also all roads of untreated ADHD lead to PTSD in my opinion. Only after treating the PTSD, I could recognize the ADHD component of my life. I was depressed, have PTSD which comes with so many symptoms of ADHD. However, I had too many hobbies, too many rabbit holes to explore, novelty is the name of the game. These are not quite the Hallmark of PTSD.

  6. My dog fractured her tooth and because of the way I am, wait times, having to make many many calls, I took longer than I should have to get her in for extraction. I finally dropped her in yesterday morning for the procedure. The whole day yesterday I felt unreal. I am so used to her being everywhere I am, I kept either imagining or seeing her, but not really either. I don't know how to even describe it. I was out of sort all day. I cried a lot. Even though logically, I knew she was fine and all that, I am so governed by fear that it's just unmanageable for me. Could not stop my negative thoughts, worst case scenario, horrible fantasies if you can call it that. Hang in there, sending my best wishes to your little guy.

  7. Thank you! I hope your dog is home now and those fears have melted away. My kitty has been in situations like that before with illness, but this is definitely the most dire. I updated in a comment above about how he’s doing if you’re interested.

  8. Am glad you got some reassurance from the vet. Hope you are back to comforting each other soon.

  9. There isn't really an easy solution unfortunately. The best thing you can try to do is find steps in between where the dog is excited but not completely over threshold, and work on training there. Is there somewhere she is excited and has some trouble listening but isn't completely over threshold? Can you park further away and start right out of the car and gradually decrease distance to the exciting places?

  10. Thank you so much for taking time to respond. I may have an idea on the place where we could try that. Appreciate your tips on the front and back clip. Her harness has both those options and I will try it out.

  11. Someone whose dog loves unconditionally.

  12. Sorry to hear you both are in this position. As others have stated, NA or any other sobriety groups will be the place to be. She is probably feeling a lot of anxiety/depression/withdrawal and naturally wants to soothe herself. The only thing to do is to wait it out and not use. Does not matter If it's reddit, you tube or whatever it takes to pass time and not use. There are NA meetings every hour. She does not have to talk, turn the audio or video on. Just put it on and listen to all the others who have been in her shoes, one way or the other. Might make her realize she is not as alone in this struggle as she feels right now. It will be a volatile time with lots of emotions. I don't know how anybody managed to do it but we do. I can tell you really want to help her. Support can be a wonderful thing even if she is understandably resistant to it at the moment but she also has to also make some movement towards it and want to be sober. Maybe ask her if she will be willing to listen in at one of the NA meetings. There are many others, but NA is widely used and you can basically find meetings at all hours. My best.

  13. Should have posted with a quarter for size. The package is so small, can't imagine anything fitting there, it's a miniature

  14. Looks like resident goat in one of the temples. Now it's possible that it just like the smell and is just out there, being goat of all goats. There are a lot of babas around, toking up, makes me wonder if it's been partaking and expecting to get high.

  15. Hi there, I admire your honesty. Of course I do not know if you do or do not have ADHD. There is a genetic element to the condition and it is possible that multiple people in your family might have it. If you do have it, Just by nature, we seek dopamine constantly. I was diagnosed in my 40s. I have two children, one is very normal and one had ADHD. My dad was an alcoholic and so was his dad who ultimately took his own life. They of course never had any access to mental health and have really suffered. It's like our personal family heirloom. I have struggled with substance abuse all my life. I don't even know how I did it but have been off the hard stuff for a long time and have relentlessly worked on trying to make myself better but my brain is what it is, unregulated and it's been a Sisyphean task of sort. I don't know how old you are and sometimes it's hard to see things for what they are when you are young and have deeper reflection of yourself. I think therapy and CPT has given me some clarity to see myself more that a drug addict.

  16. I am pretty sure both my key fobs ended up in the trash too. I also gradually loose all my silverware and had no idea why. One time caught myself in the process of throwing it in the trash. My hands will just do things I have no idea about. Now my spouse has put tiles in everything that can be found from their phone. I never can find the phone either. So far it has worked and have been able to retain the new fobs for a few months now. Hope you find something that works for you

  17. Also, if you can’t afford it, saying “Well I have all these symptoms that I’ve researched. It’s probably ADHD. Let’s try these recommended therapies geared towards ADHD” is vastly different than “haha I can’t focus so I have ADHD”. Even if you find out later down the road it’s not ADHD, chances are that those therapies will still work seeing that your mind works similarly enough. You’re not “faking” just because you haven’t got a diagnosis. Your symptoms are still real.

  18. I was one of those parents called by the teachers for intervention. Honestly I was a little taken aback and did not know if I believed them or how to react. I listened to all their concern, added my observations and told them basically I have very limited understanding of the conditions so will get back to them after I educate myself. 2 years down the rabbit hole has lead to my own diagnosis. It helped me finally understand the conundrum that is my life. I can now help him and he does not have to go through what I went through. The teacher who called for the intervention also has ADHD. I texted her and thanked her. I think teachers with ADHD are a blessing for the kids who have similar conditions. Thank you for doing what you can for your students. I always remember the one teacher who treated me better than all the ones that sucked.

  19. Thank you so much for the well thought out and detailed response. I will definitely try to find different ways to engage him in learning. The teachers biggest complaint was his constant talking and being unable to sit still and focus. I will have to try and find a solution for that. He has literally been a routine driven child since he was basically born. The other problem we've been having is at home. He only sleeps about 3 to 4 hours a night, and that's wearing on us all.

  20. He does not have a 504 in place. I'd assume that comes after diagnosis but I will be sure to look into it! We have tried all sorts of things, including melatonin and weighted blankets. He just can't stay asleep. Thanks so much for chatting with me. It's been very helpful!

  21. Shit situations that we have not much control over. I read your comment down below and like you I struggled with drug addiction for a really long time. I was recently diagnosed so it's been a crazy life, never understanding what was going on. Also like you I do intend to intervene as needed and not repeat the cycle for his sake. Hugs.

  22. That is pretty unique. Your calculation of uniqueness warmed my heart. Love it!

  23. I have the same problem. I like to play blues, metal, folk, bluegrass. I have played the instrument for over 2 decades but have never made the progress I want to, just mediocre. Sometimes it helps to find an instructor on Thumbtack or something so I have more accountability and will practice just so I don't look like an idiot in the next session. Sometimes it's just a piece I really would love to be able to play and can spend some time on it. Other times I will force myself to at least play 15 min everyday. I tend to have better success when I am able to implement this one because usually I end up playing for a lot longer. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. I am hoping the meds will give me a little push towards consistency but that is yet to be seen.

  25. A month ago after a relapse I went to an urgent care facility (John Muir in Oakland) and got a prescription for gabapentin that stopped the shakes/ incipient seizures. Out of pocket no insurance it was $90 for the visit and $60 for the gabapentin. That’s probably you best short term route - I got it done same day with the help of a friend to drive me.

  26. Thank you, I will be calling everyone I can and get him the help he needs one way or another. Thank you. Hope you are keeping well. Good luck

  27. Call Palm Ave Detox in San Mateo, (650) 513-6500. If they can’t take him, I’m sure they’ll help you figure something out. AA orgs will probably be more helpful than the county, at least from my experience.

  28. Thank you, I am very grateful for all the responses and will explore all these options.

  29. I am probably wrong here, but I think the more folks that are vaccinated, the better. My county is just basically sitting on it. The whole tier system is lost on us with a good amount of population refusing it. No time to waste. Vaccinate anyone who actually wants to. I also understand this is not as simple as that. At the same time when you are loosing 4K people a day, vaccinate who you can.

  30. Rest in Peace, fellow human buddy. I don't know how anyone goes on somehow but we do. Sorry for the family and friends enduring this loss. I recently lost someone and grieving. My thoughts are with you.
