I agree. Really looking for the constructive “next steps” here, hoping we can all figure it out together. Feeling... kinda too traumatized to do it by myself, hoping the orgy of sharing all these terrible stories is going to lead to... something.
My main point is: the freezing up is not just a response to physical… Read more
UGH UGHNARRRRRRGghhh... ga. I think you just fucking broke me. Yup. That was the individual shitty truth about everything that did it. Fa.
Here are some facts about PTSD, from a woman who has PTSD:

I have been having similar feels since Monday.

To confirm: just broke up with a man for this reason, and staying single for same. Can NOT debate my lived reality as if it was some philosophy class exercise with a guy who thinks he’s a good dude but is by his own definition a rapist, makes 6 times more then me but thinks we should go halvsies on the groceries and… Read more
+1 Salient point is salient.
If either of the world wars had reached American shores, there would have been more of an integration of America as a whole, where everyone is defending the country. There has been no landwar since the Civil War, no outside enemy to unite against and fight as brothers on, to literally… Read more
I legit thought that was Wyoming for the first two loops.
How else do you think they will grow the army?
Perry looks like a future “escape goat” to me.
Or that the yardsticks that defined success in Network TV at different than the ones in broadband networks, and we are moving out of a time when Network TV is the leading way people consume their content. Do you have cable? Or do you pay for internet and subcribe to specific content. The ratings system known as… Read more
