no I don’t have it but a dear friend almost certainly does, and I have been trying to help. she has had every sort of test I can think of done due to her crippling condition and nothing else shows up. I told hewr reglan is risky but she has lost so much weight and is malnourished from it. has no other options that they share with her so I came here.

she is on reglan. I just told her about the domperidone and pureed foods. she couldn’t go to thanksgiving dinner because of her stomach and bowel issues. she is miserable always feeling like she needs to “go” and cant. yes she is avoiding fiber.

It is possible to have a group chat. Some programs are free, some charge. But it works really well… if it's something several people really would value and will benefit from we should look into it.

Google "meetup" groups in area. If none, you can start one but it's a cost of about 10 or more a month to use their publicity and format.

Your post brings tears to my eyes because those could be my words you wrote. I try to turn my inner judgements into compassion for the horror, terror and pain I lived with that seemed to be of my own doing or my own body. But the hatred of my often incapacitating fear is often too much. Compassion doesn't have a chance in the cataclism of torment that engulfs me. I love your little suffering child, feel such compassion for her. Wish it was easier to have it for myself!

To add to suggestions of peter Levine and Bessel van der kolk (spelling may be off) in response to teresa's question for me to share working with body movements over talking and conscious mind work…I have found instinctively a need for a specific touch to help when in a ptsd attack as well as an overall need and longing aching for tenderness. I knew that another's gentle full-palm hand placed above my heart area, just below collar bonesb in middle, was what I needed. It always helped, especially when I was regressed or terrified. It helped a bit to do it to myself if no one else there. I discovered years later that one of the world's top torture recovery experts who used Tapping methods, told me that spot is a tapping spot they use in treating POWs. Not heart or throat chakra, in between. I also found massage to be healing, and asked for tenderness, to touch my skin with reverence as I felt defiled and lived with agonizing shame daily. I still struggle with severe self loathing shame and suicidal feelings when I am (frequently) triggered. Have improved greatly over lifetime of search for answers, tenderness/connection….. and a place to belong.

Look into books by Judith Herman healing trauma….a breakthrough book years ago, and Bessel van Der Kolk's ibooks, also Peter Levine, "waking the tiger," and check YouTube videos on both these two men, top experts in field. Get a true specialist in cptsd aka developmental trauma disorder, if stemming from childhood.
