Default Who can I trust?????????????

I can't stop thinking that people are out to harm me in some way or another. It can be as small as hurting my feelings, making me look stupid or as large as looking through my things "to have something on me". I've been diagnosed with PTSD and many other things. I'm not a nut.
People have done horribly rotten things to me for most of my 34 years and I don't know how to let this go. I don't know how to decipher who is not trying to hurt me and who actually is. The only person I completely trust is my 7 year old daughter. This is hard to keep to myself. I'm soooo tired from analyzing every word and the actions of people just to see if there out to get me. I seem to be always looking for any red flag. Does this make any kind of sense to anyone???
This is one of the reasons I can rarely leave my house. : (

I cant believe I did a reply and it didnt work. But mainly what it said was can I have a copy of this info somehow. and that my older brother offered me castor oil once when I was blacked out for two weeks. He was about 7 and me 5. I thought he had real insight now looking back. And this acts as a positive trigger to me. (and I only just learned what a trigger is since coming to PC) I better not make this too long because maybe it wont work.

Hi
Having a difficyult time with flashbacks -- not able to sleep -- feeling better since I got sleep-----Pdoc gave me Zyprexa to knock me out for sleep .
I was in what i can only describe as a sleep deprived psychosis state. Hallucinating and such.
Somewhere on this site i saw something about Lopressor as a possible drug that might be useful nut cannot find it now -- saw the Pdoc friday but was in such a state he called the ambulance to have me admitted and when I refused he gave me the tranqulizer
now that I got sleep and am doing better I woild like to talk to him abou the idea of lopressor but wanted to get more info -- I see him agian on Monday
Can anyone help me to relocate that info.
Thanks

vanna,

Lopressor (the brand name, Metoprolol is the generic)is a beta-blocker that is being used for anxiety and PTSD because it blocks the adrenaline which stimulates the autonomic nerve action when stressed or startled etc. At least that's what my P-doc told me, and what I remember.

Lopressor
