@toilet.punisher,

I’m really glad you have found some benefit and relief with meditation. It may not be for everyone, but I don’t know where I would be without it, personally. The ‘trigger game’ is a difficult one that I think we all struggle with, but you sound like you are doing quite well with it. We all lose sometimes…and who doesn’t have…

I live in a G7 city that seems to be trying to assert itself as a Third World nation without plumbing. People in my neighborhood often use shrubs across the street from my house b/c there are no public toilets. Too expensive, says the city, which is among the highest tax jurisdictions anywhere! I wish advocates of green space would include…

I am not a simple solution person at all. But it’s been a couple of months now and raw honey a tsp in the am plus one Immodium seems to be working for me. I would never have believed it but I seem to be living proof. I bet if your guts stabilized your mindset would, too. I find I am seized by fear and dread whenever I venture beyond a place where…

@Joonie76,

While I live in the U.S. and do not know the system of confidentiality in Canada, I will say that if you authorize the sharing of medical records from one doctor to the other, the records will be shared in their entirety, just as they would be if you requested them for yourself. I remember the first time I read my therapist’s notes…
