Re: FOOD STAMPS GONE: Good Bye SNAP - Hello "America's Harvest Box"!
I get EBT.

I got horrendous PTSD while living in the Arabian Gulf in the three years leading up to 9/11. For most of you, the horror began on that date. For me, it began in 1998 when I was stationed in Bahrain.

I have been disabled for 5 years now, but I have worked 4.25 out of those 5 years, full time...including in a factory doing very hard physical labor, approaching the age of 50.

Because of my time in the factory, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on both hands within the course of 2 months.

I am not a slacker, and have a hard time even asking for help.

It has taken me months of hard work to get my hands to work again. I declined physical therapy, because I know I can do it myself, at no cost to taxpayers.

I am grateful for you ALL for paying into a system in which I can rehabilitate.

Not every disabled person getting EBT is a loser.

When you lump us all into that 'box,' it is incredibly hurtful.

I spent almost 18 years overseas supporting service men and women, and I am proud and grateful that I did.

I took small children into my own home who had dually-deployed parents...and accepted NO money for doing so.

The hate I am seeing here breaks my heart.

What are you doing about horrendous PTSD (besides collecting in it)?

If I told you how to fix it, would you? Unlike the physical therapy you avoid, it costs taxpayers nothing.

Check your cortisol. Don’t let doc tell you “normal”. Check the number. Find natural means to get that number into the optimal range. Tell me if PTSD is still “horrendous” or just some quick reflexes and smart instincts.

PTSD saved my sweet bippy AGAIN two years ago. I don’t think it’s “horrendous” and I’ve never felt sorry for myself. Even when I was so depressed I didn’t think I’d see fifty I knew I became such a pain in the ass doing what was right and doing what (and whom!) I loved.

It’s only shitstorm when you deplete cortisol. Keep cortisol optimal and you get back control over arousal. There’s a lot you can do alone (without therapist or doctors).

Women with PTSD get low progesterone in midlife. It makes us whiny. Thirty dollars a month for a good progesterone replacement..

Post traumatic stress changes are very real. It’s called growing up. The world is not safe and adults aren’t meant to believe it is. I don’t know about you, but men without the reflexes and hypervigilance, men who still fear death, seem awfully boyish to me. PTSD is just adulthood with hormone imbalance. It’s not “horrendous” ffs, to know about life.

I begged and cried and raged and bullied trying to get ptsd treatment out of publicly funded sources. This was in a good liberal state. Same situation in Nebraska or Missouri gets folks zombies up real quick. They don’t care about your life. Their job is to sort you as gonna get free shot and not gonna get free shit. They turn on a dime, too. One day they are refusing to do their fucking job because they think you have hidden riches but still want free shit and the next day they’ve changed your tune and you are the noble and worthy exception to the rule. You still don’t get good treatment for PTSD.

Keep the free shit if you enjoy it. I don’t care if you get free shit.

I get mad hearing about “horrendous” PTSD eating up women’s lives. It’s cortisol and progesterone. You may always have a wonky HPA but you don’t have to be crippled by it.

No o e has to be crippled by PTSD. Fix your cortisol and ptsd is contained.

My response to you was due to your hate and ignorance, and in no way a relection of Who and What I am.

I have been on this forum for 8 years and the multitude of the members here KNOW me.

When did you live in the Arabian Gulf? What years? From where do you get your supposed knowledge from?

Please do tell!

Go back to your loser, hateful life.

 Quoting: Polkahonkus


The 'horredous" PTSD has served me well in my life. It is a double-edged sword, as you seem to know.

I am currently using homeopathic globules to curb it.

I became tired of the panic attacks that occurred for no reason whatsoever. (The explosions I experienced made me hyper-sensitive to loud noises.)

As I stated in my original post, I have relied on the 'system' for 6 months, after having been 'declared' disabled.

Not sure where the disconnect is with some of you.

I am not looking for 'free shit,' or sympathy. That is a value judgement based on people who have not a clue as to Who and What I Am.

I found it necessary to also find non-medical means to help me. For me, those include meditation and yoga.

I do not rely on traditional medical care., short of the surgeries I had that were necessary.

I am sorry you have had difficulties, but am unsure as to why you felt it necessary to assume I was looking for 'free shit.'

I have not a clue how that serves you, or the other poster.

If you are interested in how I battle my PTSD in a naturopathic way, please feel free to message me.

For this reason only I know it is a lie. Congress be congressing and Coca Cola be paying. Do tou understand? It’s not about right or fair or healthy. It’s about elected officials getting and staying rich. They don’t give a darn about food stamp recipients.

 Quoting: Polkahonkus


Having an inoperable cyclic 5mm ACTH Pituitary Macroadenoma which throws me in to both Addisonian crisis and Cushings, sometimes on an hourly basis. and am highly qualified to discuss cortisol.

Cortisol levels are far easier to raise than they are to lower.

I'm happy you were successful in treating your issues but being heartless to those who are struggling is nothing short of self-serving. Everybody's situation and traumatic crisis is different and it is not the same as 'Growing Up.' It has nothing to do with believing that the world should be a safe space. Not all PTSD is shell shock. C-PTSD is far different from shell shock, etc.

Should we coddle PTSD? No, that's not what I'm saying and neither was LilMiss. We all have strenghts and weakness and it's not always a simple fix. Hell, cortisol levels is not even a simple fix.

Be encouraging or heartless, it really doesn't make much difference in the scheme of things. Cheers.

I get EBT.

I got horrendous PTSD while living in the Arabian Gulf in the three years leading up to 9/11. For most of you, the horror began on that date. For me, it began in 1998 when I was stationed in Bahrain.

I have been disabled for 5 years now, but I have worked 4.25 out of those 5 years, full time...including in a factory doing very hard physical labor, approaching the age of 50.

Because of my time in the factory, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on both hands within the course of 2 months.

I am not a slacker, and have a hard time even asking for help.

It has taken me months of hard work to get my hands to work again. I declined physical therapy, because I know I can do it myself, at no cost to taxpayers.

I am grateful for you ALL for paying into a system in which I can rehabilitate.

Not every disabled person getting EBT is a loser.

When you lump us all into that 'box,' it is incredibly hurtful.

I spent almost 18 years overseas supporting service men and women, and I am proud and grateful that I did.

I took small children into my own home who had dually-deployed parents...and accepted NO money for doing so.

The hate I am seeing here breaks my heart.

What are you doing about horrendous PTSD (besides collecting in it)?

If I told you how to fix it, would you? Unlike the physical therapy you avoid, it costs taxpayers nothing.

Check your cortisol. Don’t let doc tell you “normal”. Check the number. Find natural means to get that number into the optimal range. Tell me if PTSD is still “horrendous” or just some quick reflexes and smart instincts.

PTSD saved my sweet bippy AGAIN two years ago. I don’t think it’s “horrendous” and I’ve never felt sorry for myself. Even when I was so depressed I didn’t think I’d see fifty I knew I became such a pain in the ass doing what was right and doing what (and whom!) I loved.

It’s only shitstorm when you deplete cortisol. Keep cortisol optimal and you get back control over arousal. There’s a lot you can do alone (without therapist or doctors).

Women with PTSD get low progesterone in midlife. It makes us whiny. Thirty dollars a month for a good progesterone replacement..

Post traumatic stress changes are very real. It’s called growing up. The world is not safe and adults aren’t meant to believe it is. I don’t know about you, but men without the reflexes and hypervigilance, men who still fear death, seem awfully boyish to me. PTSD is just adulthood with hormone imbalance. It’s not “horrendous” ffs, to know about life.

I begged and cried and raged and bullied trying to get ptsd treatment out of publicly funded sources. This was in a good liberal state. Same situation in Nebraska or Missouri gets folks zombies up real quick. They don’t care about your life. Their job is to sort you as gonna get free shot and not gonna get free shit. They turn on a dime, too. One day they are refusing to do their fucking job because they think you have hidden riches but still want free shit and the next day they’ve changed your tune and you are the noble and worthy exception to the rule. You still don’t get good treatment for PTSD.

Keep the free shit if you enjoy it. I don’t care if you get free shit.

I get mad hearing about “horrendous” PTSD eating up women’s lives. It’s cortisol and progesterone. You may always have a wonky HPA but you don’t have to be crippled by it.

No o e has to be crippled by PTSD. Fix your cortisol and ptsd is contained.
 Quoting: Polkahonkus


The 'horredous" PTSD has served me well in my life. It is a double-edged sword, as you seem to know.

I am currently using homeopathic globules to curb it.

I became tired of the panic attacks that occurred for no reason whatsoever. (The explosions I experienced made me hyper-sensitive to loud noises.)

As I stated in my original post, I have relied on the 'system' for 6 months, after having been 'declared' disabled.

Not sure where the disconnect is with some of you.

I am not looking for 'free shit,' or sympathy. That is a value judgement based on people who have not a clue as to Who and What I Am.

I found it necessary to also find non-medical means to help me. For me, those include meditation and yoga.

I do not rely on traditional medical care., short of the surgeries I had that were necessary.

I am sorry you have had difficulties, but am unsure as to why you felt it necessary to assume I was looking for 'free shit.'

I have not a clue how that serves you, or the other poster.

If you are interested in how I battle my PTSD in a naturopathic way, please feel free to message me.

PTSD is associated with suboptimal cortisol.
Elevate cortisol to optimal levels.

Hydrocortisone can be and is used to treat PTSD. It requires a prescription.

Google natural means to ELEVATE low cortisol and do them.

Low cortisol lowers progesterone. You can replace progesterone with otc progesterone. You may want to investigate xenoestrogens poisoning estrogen dominance. You want to clean up diet and stop using bad estrogen skin and laundry products so progesterone doesn’t stop working right.

Cortisol
Progesterone
Estrogen:progesterone balance.

Be well.
My wish for you is to be happy and well.

Having an inoperable cyclic 5mm ACTH Pituitary Macroadenoma which throws me in to both Addisonian crisis and Cushings, sometimes on an hourly basis. and am highly qualified to discuss cortisol.

Cortisol levels are far easier to raise than they are to lower.

I'm happy you were successful in treating your issues but being heartless to those who are struggling is nothing short of self-serving. Everybody's situation and traumatic crisis is different and it is not the same as 'Growing Up.' It has nothing to do with believing that the world should be a safe space. Not all PTSD is shell shock. C-PTSD is far different from shell shock, etc.

Should we coddle PTSD? No, that's not what I'm saying and neither was LilMiss. We all have strenghts and weakness and it's not always a simple fix. Hell, cortisol levels is not even a simple fix.

Be encouraging or heartless, it really doesn't make much difference in the scheme of things. Cheers.

PTSD—the kind that comes from combat—is associated with low cortisol. It is not endocrinologocally low. It is suboptimal. Elevating cortisol to optimal levels contains startle and intrusive symptoms.

I am familiar with cortisol's relationship with fight/flight/freeze and can appreciate your research and the fact that you have a brain. You make a good point and I am sure that could defiantly help.

You said:

"Oh! give us all a break.

Bahrain is about as easy going as it gets.

It seems you have a long history of complaining in order to get government benefits.

Doesn't that bother you???

Don't make up this shit and expect sympathy from people which is exactly what you want."

I say:

You do not have a fucking CLUE what I experienced over there you moran!

More often than not, we were in Charlie, and were remanded to stay in our homes.

MANY times, we were in threatcom DELTA and were told to have our bags packed, in case the Marines needed to drop in and evacuate us.

On top of that, I was pregnant!

Just shut the fuck up you goddamn parasite of a human being!

You have NO clue!

I have never even spoken of this on this forum, and you say I have a history of complaining???

YOU are the loser.

 Quoting: LilMiss


Nice! Your real side comes out. Good attack on me. You have a mean side Huh?

I absolutely have a clue and am calling you on your absolute BS.

Ha Ha your so full of it and saying you were pregnant is a nice touch to try and garner more sympathy that you thrive on.

Bahrain is one of the most mellow party countries in the middle east.

If there was a real threat the military would have evacuated you. Further if your pregnant you can not deploy!!
 Quoting: supporter


My response to you was due to your hate and ignorance, and in no way a relection of Who and What I am.

I have been on this forum for 8 years and the multitude of the members here KNOW me.

When did you live in the Arabian Gulf? What years? From where do you get your supposed knowledge from?

Please do tell!

Go back to your loser, hateful life.

When you point at someone else, you have three fingers pointing back.
 Quoting: LilMiss

Wow, I also think you're BSing now. What does "in Charlie" mean? And he's right about not deploying with a mental illness, and about that they would want you out of the area if you were pregnant.

And if you understand our concern about the many leeches on this system, you would react more rationally to efforts to discuss your reasons for being there -- which might be good, but now I doubt it.

Re: FOOD STAMPS GONE: Good Bye SNAP - Hello "America's Harvest Box"!
I get EBT.

I got horrendous PTSD while living in the Arabian Gulf in the three years leading up to 9/11. For most of you, the horror began on that date. For me, it began in 1998 when I was stationed in Bahrain.

I have been disabled for 5 years now, but I have worked 4.25 out of those 5 years, full time...including in a factory doing very hard physical labor, approaching the age of 50.

Because of my time in the factory, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on both hands within the course of 2 months.

I am not a slacker, and have a hard time even asking for help.

It has taken me months of hard work to get my hands to work again. I declined physical therapy, because I know I can do it myself, at no cost to taxpayers.

I am grateful for you ALL for paying into a system in which I can rehabilitate.

Not every disabled person getting EBT is a loser.

When you lump us all into that 'box,' it is incredibly hurtful.

Dramatic irony - wealthy people voluntarily pay big bucks to have food delivered to them in boxes because they get healthy and fresh food on a regular basis and they don't have to shop. Poor people complain about boxes delivered to them as unhealthy and not allowing choice. Go figure.

If people need food they will be happy with a government food program...

can meat,powdered milk and eggs,beans,rice,bread etc.

No direct money should ever be given.

Its cheaper to get goods direct from the farm and cuts out the fraud.They can drive to a warehouse or mail the box every month.
