Briefly, i'm 44 and on disability since 2003 for complex ptsd, anxiety-depression, panic disorder, "bipolar 2" (not convinced of this one) and relapsing alcohol abuse. I was assaulted, terrorized and neglected as a child and it set the stage for a pattern of abuse. My foundation has been rocked and today, i feel "safe" isolating from the jungle out there. I find healing when i'm alone and i'm nervous around people even my loved ones. I wasn't always this way but i accept my transformation as a result of the neglect or non-existence of appropriate therapeutic intervention in childhood and beyond. I accept myself as i am but "society" doesn't. (One more reason for me to disconnect from the mainstream.) I want to thank David for this forum which i find to be a safe and honest forum for unique individuals. I wish David a speedy recovery from his recent medical intervention. Also many thanks to the moderators who make this forum possible. I read faster than i can type and, being in the process of moving, i hope to contribute with focus when i can. I'm sure to learn much here. God bless you all. :)

The general warning about alcohol and SSRIs is that they don't mix well. I think many people on SSRIs do allow themselves a glass of wine or beer periodically in moderation and realistically this doesn't seem to be harmful, as long as they are aware that the SSRI may add to the impairing effects of alcohol (i.e., don't drive). On the other hand, there's also no doubt at all that heavy alcohol intake, whether regularly or occasionally, is a very bad idea. As for coffee, I can't imagine not...

I talked a little bit to my friends about the subject, not going into too much detail. And they said something about it being triggered by 'blood lust', wanting to be hurt. I already knew that though, that's why we do are monthly dares, just about every time we do a dare someone ends up in the hospital. I did my dare back in May, I got hurt, and enjoyed it. That is also around the time this whole thing started, or atleast got worse.
