I have ptsd and bi-polar and i try not to make it an excuse but sometimes they get in the way of things. For example, having a job. If i can pull off an interview, i can get a job, but holding on to a job is a different story. People freak me out and most the jobs i have had are all customer service jobs. Whether its fast food or not. I've been fired from all of them. My boyfriend does't understand this and we often times fight about it. Also, he hates when i talk down about myself. I understand this but all i say is, "i FEEL worhless". I ask him who else i'm suppose to talk to about these things. He thinks we fight too much, all couples fight, so i feel like hes coming up with excuses to leave me. Also, i want to go to an herbalist school for 3 months in washington, he does't know if we wants to go wih me, and he does't want travel with me anymore. Which, i could be totally wrong about this. Have any of you had to deal with their mental disorder and such, how did you deal with them?

they say the only thing that will help ptsd is a stable enviorment. he sounds like a jerk, fuck him. go to school, do your own thing.

I also have ptsd,going back to a real bad car wreck,then everything else that has gone down,in my life. I had to get clean & sober,that really helped me !.............People find it hard to deal with themselves,much less another persons problems, unless they have learned to deal with their own shit !...........Go to school,do whatever makes you happy,in the long run,meaning,don't do thinks you will regret !

Well, i dont like to drink much, and i've been sober from slamming morphine for a year, i smoke weed cause i consider it a medication, not because i want to get highh. I consider myself a naturalist, so my diet isnt so bad. But sometimes my friends want to eat taco bell lol. I'm just trying to help my situation.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
