Re: i don't know the subject this time by wasp_rainbowarrior on Sat Feb 18, 2017 3:07 pm
i haven't felt that bad since yesterday but i haven't felt anything else either. whenever i stop and pay attention to how i'm feeling i get this tight chest feeling and my heart beats faster, like some form of anxiety. i haven't felt any joy or happiness for the past days and have been keeping myself distracted from that feeling. i don't understand why i dissociate since my happiest moments are those at which i feel the closer to reality. i'm trying not to get carried away...

I don't think it's odd at all to think of something, anything, as a security blanket. I've never been much of one for substance abuse, save alcohol on occasion. And I'm usually too frugal to spend large amounts on stuff, but addictive/unhealthy behaviors..... yes I definitely empathise on the level of 'I'm doing this and I can't seem to stop'.


It seems that it should be so simple. It's just a behavior, right? Just don't buy them! If only... For folks like us, it can be as difficult as any substance abuse. Maybe worse- what's a DVD, right?

Hang in there sweets![/quote]

Thanks for your kind reply! It's good news - I have the benign EDS Hypermobility Syndrome. It mixes & matches nicely with the CFS and Fibromyalgia I've already got lol. The doctor thinks that my heart condition (Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome) is a separate issue, as is the early menopause - I'm just unlucky. What a life! No wonder I go comfort-shopping lol! At least I'm not on illegal drugs or alcohol, I guess...

I know what you mean when you say it isn't as simple as "stop buying them then", although that is indeed the logical answer. I have a friend who binge-eats and I once said to her "Well, enjoy your biscuits but just have one or two per day - they'll still be in the tin for tomorrow!" The look she gave me! But I understand it a bit better now & can empathise now I have my own addiction!

Hugs!

I know, in my worse moments, I feel as if my hold on reality slips. And it sounds almost as if you're disassociating a bit. Been there done that, also.

I don't know how it works for you, but it doesn't surprise me that interest in sex would be the thing that endures- sex, especially I think sex behaviors that we feel we shouldn't be doing- makes me forget myself a short while.

Hang in there-i for one, don't expect you to go insane-but I'm very familiar with the sensation of losing control over oneself.

Stay safe, sweets.
