Successes, Progress? / I'm doing better
« on: October 21, 2016, 12:57:18 AM »
I am now going to therapy only once a month. I had a breakthrough -- I realized that this is what I'm like and I've accepted it, and stopped giving myself a hard time about it -- thinking I should be better. It's such a relief to do this -- it's like a weight has been lifted. So I will still have bad days, have bouts of anxiety, and that's okay. I can get through them. Before I fussed and whined about them, and made myself feel worse.

Successes, Progress? / Therapist is weaning me off therapy

I'm have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it's good news. The last few sessions have been just talking about things that I cope with that happen over and over again.

But I guess I'm also dealing with accepting that I have an incurable mental illness, I have learned how to cope with it, but it will never go away completely. :fallingbricks:

General Discussion / Relapse

I was doing moderately well, as long as I followed my usual routine. However, my computer was dying and I have a Chromebook. I used to be a real computer geek, and it took over my life for a couple of weeks. Actually had some energy.

Then I crashed -- could only cope with what was absolutely necessary. I have just been relaxing for a few days and I feel better. I usually have a small crash if I do too much in one day, but it doesn't last that long.

General Discussion / Resilience

I've had depression off and on since high school. The last one, when I was diagnosed with PTSD, has lasted a long time. I used to be a resilient person, and after down periods, I used to eventually get my life back. Haven't been able to do this, and it's been three years.
Anyone else notice this?
