    Interesting concept. I must admit I am/was skeptical, but when I thought about it, I kinda realized that I use the /bipolar subreddit in much the same way. I've been through a journey from thinking that "everybody feels this way"(depression and hypomania as a teenager) to "holy fuck I am a freak I must bury this inside" (dealing with depression, hypomania and suicidal ideation as an adult). I suppose a controlled and facilitated group session is somewhat different than a uncontrolled, unfacilitated and random subreddit filled with to a varying degree of stable/unstable people.

    Hm. Thanks for this - it's food for thought.

    Could you hold two meetings back to back, bringing numbers down to 9 or so? Or just lengthen the time slot and make it a "drop in" session where people can come and go?

    So news.

    They caught the stepdad in Germany. He's been extradited to sweden and is being held in jail. There will be trial soon.

    He's been on the run since 2014/2015 basically so.. I am not sure how to feel about this or what to do, i mean sure glad to finally close a chapter in my book so to say but also oldish wounds and all.

    I dunno if I can even go to the trial (im a witness)

    That would have been way better than you assume.

    Don't have it, probably around page 144 or so but tl;dr, stepdad physically and mentally abused the family causing us to move out etc, this has been ongoing since 2014

    He was arrested, especially after kidnapping my brothers, and then let go after initial proceedings but was still suspect, we had already moved to protected areas and all so we were generally safe

    then when the trial was going to happen, the guy fled the country somehow ending up in turkey so the swedish gov't put out an arrest warrant for him and fastforward untill now when he got arrested in germany

    I got the call from the court and i'm called as a witness so yay..

    OIC. Good that there's a chance that justice will prevail but sucks that you're dragged into it

    More like he'll mostly likely run away to Türkei again, this time without making the mistake of traveling to Germany.

    So, asking for a friend etc. Can psychological factors (depression, stress) cause severe physiological (? No idea, just throwing words out) side effects like full blown sickness?
    Let's say someone suddenly starts getting coughing attacks when talking and.. Brace yourselves, whenever he tries to eat something that shit starts again and gets so severe that he has trouble breathing and even throws up?

    It's borderline surreal but as real as it gets. Docs can't find the issue, more appointments lined up but damn, shit is serious (not being able to eat and no medicaments helping, for weeks) :/



    Edit: if someone can recommend a serious mood lamp (that is suitable for proper medical treatment, not some nice cozy lamp), I would be grateful.

    Yes, they can. It's quite interesting that it can cause physical issues (tachycardia, tachypnea, nausea, vomiting, fainting), but bloods don't usually show anything bad. What helps is genuinely being there for them and if it shit gets real (i.e. dehydration or malnutrition), get the ambulance. Not a lot more you can do, really.

    Aha I see. Sadly she doesnt want to see anyone or talk to others, just stays in her room most of the time and wouldnt even talk too much to her mother (who is now staying at her place). Occasionally she feels like talking to someone, starts a conversation with her mom and a minute later the coughing appears.
    At least I think that she feels that she doesnt want to be alone, when her mother goes out she eventually calls her to ask where she is. But then it all goes to normal - stays in her room, door shut and her mother is in the living room

    I know its not my business to butt in but im afraid for her. I cannot imagine how fragile she is having not eaten anything for so long. If its a psychological issue thats causing it, I dont know how you can get out of this state. Can she even take say antidepressants if her doctor were to prescribe her something? I mean if you cant accept any food, pills would be even worse

    Edit: not saying thats the cause of all the issues, but its probably a factor (and is something that should've been dealt with on time :/ ).

    An acquaintance of mine tended to get ill after she started working and worrying herself too much. It recently ended up in her getting appendix inflamed. i personally after telling her a couple of times to start taking it easy just extracted myself out of the entire situation. no point in trying to advise people who wont take your advice.

    Someone very close to me had a similar issue - constantly worrying, nervous before interviews, nervous at work, stressed in all kinds of situations. Finally after years of having a shit time and all parts of the body starting to throw a fit she went to the doctor and started getting light anti-depressants. Turns out another several friends/colleagues (that she knows of) had the same issue and one of them ended up helping her.

    And idk man, no amount of "dont worry", "it will be fine", "dont stress it" and what not helped. Its just how it is when you have deeper issues than you think and you ignore them for too long.
