  Dealing with Suicidal Ideation and Social Withdrawl
Posted by: thegreaseman - 02-14-2018, 09:45 PM - Forum: Anxiety Depression & Stress - Replies (8)

Hello all,
For any of you dealing with depression or other mood disorders, or really anyone else, how do you properly cope with serious suicidal thoughts? I've had a very rocky time mentally for a while now and some days just are really, really low. I have suicidal thoughts most days and they really start to become the strongest points of thought in my mind. I unfortunately have totally lost the emotional idea that it will hurt those who are close to me here, the main thing holding me back is the belief that suicide is punishable in some afterlife. What are some good reminders to try and keep in mind when feeling this way? Maybe what is a good activity to force yourself to do? My attention span has been severely damaged in recent years so please something easy, not reading which is very difficult. 
Also, I have become increasingly socially withdrawn in the past year and currently have no irl friends besides my immediate family (whom I am grateful for, when more sober). Is social withdrawal and reclusiveness acceptable ever (time for yourself) or should it be something to avoid, something to overpower? I know there are many questions here but even just one being answered would be more than I could ask for. Thanks.

  How anxious are you? Score yourself
Posted by: Rafterman - 02-14-2018, 05:16 AM - Forum: Anxiety Depression & Stress - Replies (13)

Hey all,

What follows is the Hamilton Anxiety Scale (The "HAM-A"), used to gauge the degree of anxiety that a person is experiencing.  Score each question from zero (non-existent), to five (severe). Then add them up and please consider reporting your score to the group.

Most people taking this test are surprised that their score is lower than they thought that it would be, while a smaller number think that their score exceeded their expectations.

(I scored a 15. In the past I have scored as high as 22 and as low as 8)

A score of 14-17 indicates mild anxiety. A score of 18-24 indicates moderate anxiety. A score of 25-30 indicates severe anxiety.


     Worries/Anticipates worst

       Startles/Cries easily/Restless/Trembling
     3. FEARS

        Fear of the dark/of strangers/of being alone/of animals

         Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep/nightmares


         Poor concentration/Memory Impairment


         Decreased interest in activities/Insomnia/Oversleeping

          Muscle aches or pain/Bruxism

         Tinnitus/Blurred vision

            Tachycardia/Palpitations/Chest Pain/Sensation of feeling faint


             Chest pressure/ Choking sensation/Shortness of Breath
             Dysphagia/Nausea or Vomiting/Constipation/Weight loss/Abdominal fullness

           Urinary frequency or urgency/Dysmenorrhea/Impotence

•         Dry Mouth/Flushing/Pallor/Sweating

•          Fidgeting/Tremor/Pacing

xxxxxx//www.cnn.com/2018/02/11/health/aetna-california-investigation/index.html (Replace "xxxxxx" with https: in your browser's address bar)

Quote:(CNN)California's insurance commissioner has launched an investigation into Aetna after learning a former medical director for the insurer admitted under oath he never looked at patients' records when deciding whether to approve or deny care.

California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones expressed outrage after CNN showed him a transcript of the testimony and said his office is looking into how widespread the practice is within Aetna.

"If the health insurer is making decisions to deny coverage without a physician actually ever reviewing medical records, that's of significant concern to me as insurance commissioner in California -- and potentially a violation of law," he said.

Aetna, the nation's third-largest insurance provider with 23.1 million customers, told CNN it looked forward to "explaining our clinical review process" to the commissioner.

No opiates for you in chronic pain, no benz@s for you with GAD or anxiety - Heck, no treatment, the Doctor isn't even going to review your file.

And the government remains puzzled as to why sites like this exist, or attribute them to abuse.

Music How do you do?
Posted by: toaru_nanashi - 02-13-2018, 11:57 PM - Forum: Welcome - Replies (17)

I've been lurking here for a while trying to gleam information needed to find new sites to buy off.

I have severe anxiety and depression but as they won't look good on your CV trying to get them online is my only way,
Only since I live in a lovely country New Zealand the customs are one of the best out there and has about a 50% pass rate.

So here is to me and everyone else who tried to look normal in eyes of society while carrying a pill case just in case.

Cheers Wink Heart

  Missing South Amarican Vendors
Posted by: Furyan66 - 02-12-2018, 06:46 PM - Forum: IOP General Discussion - Replies (3)

Greetings all,

I miss the South American vendors of the past.

Anyone remember the "bag of benzo's"???

Cam was always my go to guy and you could get the legit 2mg barz everyone seems to want.

There were a couple other vendors down there but cannot remember their names.

If anyone can think of another good old South American vendor  name blast from the past I'd love to see what other ones I have forgoten about

miss those old and much simpler days.

Peace All
