    At the moment it's on sale for $55us for 3g.


    Propranolol is indeed fantastic in controlling the physical manifestations of anxiety. As such, it's a banned, 'performancing enhancing' drug in sports like Olympic shooting where calmness is an asset.

    It's kind of odd, but Omega Labs has a number of sites.

    http://www.canibdol.com/ is the public site and you can buy the oral drops and the e-liquid there.

    Then they have two private sites that have a few different products on them.
    The page I filled out to request membership is here, it was a few days before I got a reply email.

    look up DSM-V (or DSM 5 = diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders edition #5 is the most current version).

    this thread is very interesting to read and i hope all make informed and healthy decisions...

    I was diagnosed with BP type II, almost 10 years ago. I have been on Lamictal since and it has worked wonders. I LOATH the idea of being on meds, but it has truly helped level out the mania/depression. Between it, and some serious work (therapy, cognitive behavior techniques, positive self talk, staying interested, my art, my family etc), I have gotten to the place where I have a successful career and family. However, it has never completely eradicated what ails me. My stress levels, ADD (which I was diagnosed as a child) and disposition in general can make times tough here and there (the winter months especially).

    In comes cannabis. I had dabbled prior in black market weed, but have since gotten my medical card. Where I may have self medicated with alcohol in the past (to sometimes ill effect), I find the judicious use of cannabis to be an absolute blessing. I don't do it every day, and rarely throughout the day. I find for me personally that the occasional session acts as a very effective stress reliever. I listen to music, draw, etc. which is tonic for my soul. All the while my mind wanders and I'm able to think about things with a much broader and often more positive perspective. It has a lasting effect. I know from past experience that using every day, throughout the day eventually (for me) created something of a dependence and really threw off my already tenuous brain chemistry. I know there are people who function perfectly as daily users, however it wasn't for me. Frankly I got very little done, outside of work.

    So yeah, as much as I don't want to be on pharmaceuticals, they help me keep it between the ditches, and it's cannabis that really helps me smell the roses along the way.

    Any links on that? I am unaware of any studies specifically showing untreated PTSD in adults with no preexisting dissociative issues becoming DID. And yes; plenty of qualifiers in that last sentence. :lol:

    I am somewhat knowledgable on PTSD, plurality/multiplicity, treatment of psychological trauma, and Abby Normal psych in general. I worked at a T back in the day and self identify as a large, multisystem, plural person.

    Complex PTSD is often associated with DID/MPD, but then it is a smorgasbord of symptoms and disorders. I think they need to rework diagnosis and classification of PTSD. And I am NOT a fan of the DSM-Vs views on dissociative stuff.

    I do have some links on both the older approach (DSM IV) as well as the DSM V's approach to dissociative presentations in PTSD but only if you have paid academic journal subscriptions unfortunately. Let me know if you do have them and I'll dig around for the stuff I read on this last I was looking at it (which tbh was probably back in the DSM IV days) :)

    No problem with the qualifiers either man, I'm an academic :lol:

    If there is some data which indicated that untreated PTSD can lead to DID it may be based on characteristics of DID rather than an escalation. Unless extreme, often those with DID are not necessarily aware that they have other "identities". Others around them may be unaware as well. They often come to treatment because of PTSD. During treatment they become more aware of dissociation and it may become more overt. But it's been there since childhood.

    after trying psych meds for 5 years, i finally found a psych who is willing to let me drop some meds, and try cannabis, as long as i monitor the THC level as if it's too high it can cause problems
