      @wagmore, I am FURIOUS with your osteopath. You are NOT broken. You were physically and emotionally hurt but the real you is fine. Please find another practitioner who is willing to work with you exactly as you are.

      Understanding the 3 principles, which I've talked about often, has helped many people recover from PTSD. Let me know if you're interested in any specific resources.

      Wags, good for coming here when you are feeling the pull. Hang in there, these uncomfortable feelings will pass an then it will be another day. Itís so good that you are not drinking, imagine how bad you would feel if you were drinking, ugh.

      Way to go on working from home Ava, Mads will be so happy.

      Life, yeah it is crazy how much people drink on a plane. You really notice it when you are abstaining.
      Yeah, we all have made those drunk calls, they are cringe worthy.

      Hola GMa!

      Donít drink today everyone.

      Wags((hugs)) I'm in disbelief at his attitude,makes no sense to me? I'm sorry you had to deal with him and his making you feel so bad LC,I don't fly cuz of my anxiety,everyone I tell that to says to"have a few drinks" hah! I could see getting a buzz going before the flight and being upset that I can't maintain it once in the air,plus I'd never want to go on a trip and waste it being all drunk and not remembering anything,glad you're having a nice trip,waves to all
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Greetings Nesters,

      I had a nice lunch with two old work friends today, more like sisters than anything

      Wags, geez, I've worked with many osteopaths over the years & never heard one of them speak like that. I would think about reporting him to your state medical board, that's just ridiculous!
      We all have our own ways & timetable for healing, don't let that fool upset you I'm sorry you were subjected to such buffoonery.
      Have you by any chance looked into acupuncture to go along with some really good PT? I know a few people who had good results & relief from chronic back pain. Hang in there, we know you don't drink.

      LC, I hope your visit goes well & I hope you do get a chance to look into Daniel Amen's books & website. Both have been very helpful for me.

      We are hearing about several snow storms working their way to the east coast, haha! Looks like i'll be staying close to home for a while

      Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Wags, I’m sorry that happened to you. Bad doctors are out there. Dump him. My nephew went to 18 specialists before he found one that actually helped him. Hang in there. You did such a good job of describing the situation that I am pissed off right there with you. Don’t let the idiots get you down. You are one of the most “together” people I know...well-balanced, compassionate, empathetic, whole. I’ve never met you, but I consider you one of my best friends. I’m so sorry that happened.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      G-man - you're hired! Honestly, that is exactly the approach I was hoping for from the osteopath, and I was stunned with what I got instead.

      NS - thank you for your furious support! I would love some specific resources - I know I definitely have PTSD, probably a few times over. I've done some work and have made lots of progress but the deepest roots are tucked in right by my heart.

      Nar and Pauly - thank you as well. This morning was the strongest al temptation I've had in a really long time, and I just knew I needed to hop right into the nest and grab the butt velcro. It worked!

      Lav - I tried acupuncture way back in the first couple of years after the first accident and it didn't seem to help, but I was also on powerful pain meds at that time, and I was struggling with the undiagnosed brain injury (lots of memory problems) so I don't take it as indicative. I've heard lots of good things so maybe it's time to try again. Good PT is the most helpful thing I ever did, and I think it might be time to get a referral for that as well.

      Byrdie - Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words. I feel pretty well-balanced too, and compassionate and empathetic are two of the best compliments I can imagine. I'm honored to be one of your best friends. You, and the others here in the nest, mean the world to me and you all certainly know me better than a lot of people! I love that we can show up here as our raw honest selves and be welcomed with open wings.

      Group hug everyone, and thank you again.

      I'm feeling somewhat better now - I've had a little time to process the whole experience and essentially hand the dude back his words. I think, perhaps, he was a bit stumped by my case and I think some practitioners don't like to feel like they don't know everything. I certainly wasn't expecting miracles, but sheesh - seriously if he had responded remotely like G-man's comment I would've been 1000% on board and satisfied. Instead, he lost me as a patient and any possible referrals. I will take a few days to regain my composure and then will start looking for someone else.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Wags, glad you're feeling a little better.

      I can't recall, but do you do any yoga? I'm def no expert on yoga, but i've heard 2 yoga teachers say recently that certain yoga moves/positions can release 'stuck' or stored emotions. That sounds pretty out there to me, but then 2 women told me last week that they experienced some tears and had an emotional response to some sort of yoga hip stretch move.

      I've also read American ex addict, now 12 step yoga program creator Nikki Meyers say - 'the issues are in the tissues'. That's her catchphrase after experiencing release of 'stuck/stored' stress and traumatic emotions as a result of certain yoga moves. Interesting stuff. I suppose the Yogi's have known this for thousands of years. No matter which way i look at it, yoga just seems to keep giving. Take care mi amiga.

      'I am part of all that I have met, yet all experience is an arch wherethro', gleams that untravelled world whose margins fade, forever and forever when I move'
