I have never ever noticed that before, and I am kind of worried. I wasn't too overwhelmed tonight, actually it was kind of nice! there was one point in time tonight when I had to deal with a very raunchy smell . . . .and ontop of that a psych resident that keeps her hands in her pants 98% of the day put her whole fist inside my mouth YUCK!!!!
    I managed to vomit like 3 times tonight, but I dont think thats why my hands were shaking so bad.

    Yesterday I was so overwhelmed and i did not shake at all. Keep in mind that I am 17 . . . and I'm not old enough to be shaking like that (lol),

    I seriously do not know what is wrong with me, but I hear that that is what happens before a nervous breakdown. i dont want to have a nervous breakdown this young, but sometimes I feel like I could. Is this why I am shaking so bad???:imbar

    Her whole fist!! I find that hard to swallow....

    First of all Mandi, why did this resident shove her fist in your mouth? I think that's ground for assault!

    Secondly, in what capacity are you working? Are you an aide?

    tremors can be brought on by many things.....
    anxiety, stress, fatigue, dehydration, side effects of drugs, effects of alcohol or drugs, physical illness, mental illness, combination of both.......are we not all human........

    hmm... I was an LPN (just graduated) at 17.... well... 17 and 3/4

    but, I was in a super advanced program, for the supergeekily inclined...

    This is one freaky thread.

    Whats worse: denial or surpression?
    And, that question does beg to be answered!!

    When it comes down to it, hidding from reality in any form is both.

    To feel real pain and suffering is a dark place, but so much more satisfying to embrace than the abyss of denial and supression of growth, which no person can satisfy its hunger.

    I fed the monster for 25 years and I am an expert on that subject, if nothing else.

    I blissfuly sat by and watched it devour all my chances at being a "normal" person.
    It may not be ruining your life, but it is nibbling on it waiting to devour you. It's a game you can't win, but your playing to a draw until you lose.

    That's a fact.

    Fine line, still, I think, Peeps. Denial is the subconscience saying no; supression is consciously saying no. Thus, I think making a conscious decision is best, so denial is worse; supression is better. Both still suck.

    Yes, in that form denial would be experienced as normal behavior, and not be seen as a pathology by the afflicted.

    Excellent clarity.

    You're right. No wonder it's so hard to stay sane.

    Everyone gets so upset into how they read into these bulletins. It can be a matter of how things are written and people get upset. I know that happens with the spoken word how much worse will it be in written form. I mean many times I have written in this board and it appears that no one is even reading my posts but I keep on plugging along and I don't take what people say as gospel. But I do know that people get thier feelings hurt badly by one simple change of a phrase. It is the holiday season, lets be nice to each other.

    Mandy, I did the same thing for a time until I started taking Paxil. I had a anxiety disorder and that took care of the problem. Go to the doctor and let him know what is going on. I may be a small problem that is easily taken care of.
