Re: how to get my dad to stop opening my mail?

Could you mail yourself a large-print copy of Federal Laws 18 U.S. Code 1702 "Obstruction Of Correspondence" and 18 U.S. Code 1708 "Theft or Receipt of Mail Matter Generally" under which it's a federal crime to open another person's mail, or laminate such a large-print copy and t...

Re: feeling frustrated as an "essential worker"

I'm sorry that's happening! I recently left a job for similar reasons... I'm glad you have some leadership and are looking out for your coworkers, maybe someone from a labor org like the UE union could advise you on next steps to follow-up with after the petition, or the iww I know has a Boston pres...

Re: Every day since age 7 I've wanted to give my body back to the earth to avoid further exploitation.

Unfortunately it's not really a matter of feelings. I've incurred more trauma and more violations from mostly every cultural project I tried to take part in - I took on conflicts that were far more than I could handle at a young age and I am still quite sure that, if I had NOT done so, the outcomes ...

Every day since age 7 I've wanted to give my body back to the earth to avoid further exploitation.

It's not safe for me to write here because staff here have expressed that people should be viewed and treated differently on the basis of misogynistic psychiatric labels that have been put upon them but I'm choosing an at-least-novel alternative to suicide in this moment. The only notable thing abou...

Re: survival without mental health

oh huh, yeah I guess there is some advantage to not having a "comfort zone" or a clearly-developed Concept of Safety, in that accounting for things other people might see as scary or risky just comes to seem mundane. the *least-harmful* counselor i ever talked to still just started crying ...

survival without mental health

As an autistic survivor of a lot of psychiatric profiling and force when I was a teenager, I've been trying to find my way to people who wouldn't direct further abuse at me, nor encourage me to enable oppression against others. (Both have been challenging.) Also I've seen a lot of folks here talk ab...

Re: Curiosity and "Bad" Timing

I want to point out that there's a wealth of research by feminist psychologists, and from the c/s/x movement, about how BPD is a descriptor that professionals put on patients in a highly gendered way, and very often, what's being called BPD could more fairly be described as Complex PTSD - like Stock...

Re: re-establishing boundaries

Is something I said considered against the guidelines or too offensive to engage with? A lot of times, after I have named the exact/systemic nature of psychiatric violence against me and my counterparts, social groups have frozen me out, but I do not want to assume that will happen again, and want t...

Re: am I too weird?

Fun fact: Feminism is another term for what was first called Women's Liberation! If you're opposed to women's liberation, then you very much are the Man versus Women that you hoped to keep out of your post! Another fun fact: If you suspect that someone has been 'hurt' by actions similar to yours, th...

Hi - I have not been interacting with other people's threads on this site because - 1 I am an adult and a mess, not a teenager or a staff/volunteer, and not someone who should probably be influencing the people this resource is made for, and - 2 I need to avoid getting back into a compulsive loop of...

Hi Sam - Thank you. I don't right now feel like I could ask anyone that but I'd like to be able to in the future. I think a lot about how different forms of violence interact with each other, and how psychiatric confinement/assault was just brought to bear on me because the softer forms of persuasio...

Re: re-establishing boundaries

Hi Sam - thank you - I mean, yes I did see this person several times after that, but we're not living in the same area now. We were partners before I left the place where I grew up, then someone attacked me in a place I moved after that, and then I saw them when I was back in the place I was from. B...

re-establishing boundaries

1. If I saw someone I used to have sex with, but made it known to them that between now and then I'd been assaulted and was really destablized, and at one point they tried to re-initiate things sexually, and I reacted with obvious distress crying and talking about just needing to be in a still quiet...
