Hey, [...]! Hiya, buddy.

Wow, what a story . .  and good for you! I can remember when we were moaning and groaning on the Working Thread with the other folks there. Bleak days indeed. But it's so good to hear that you are doing well now. I'm totally thrilled for you. Rock on!!!

Much love,

Congratulations. I have seen many of your old posts in threads. It's always good to see someone come back and say they are feeling better.

Did you deal with in intrusive thoughts during your recovery?

If getting thoughts like stabbing your family to death while holding a kitchen knife qualifies then yes!   :laugh:  I had them but I would always remind myself that intrusives are just thoughts.  Thoughts, while damn messed up, aren't harmful.
