My mom used to say that if given enough rope I’d hang myself…
For some reason, this thought comes to my mind now, that my therapist and I have made a conscious decision to cut my CBT sessions down to just twice a month. Although I feel it is time for me to practice what I’ve learned on my own, I’m almost anticipating/expecting a relapse. Especially after how I have been feeling the past couple weeks. Tired, depressed and slightly anxious… all of which I have not really mentioned to him. Things I need to constantly remind myself:
- Be aware of triggers. For self-mutilation, isolation, and mania.
- Redirect and “break the chain” when I notice I’m getting stuck in my head.
- Remember it is okay to feel pain, no more bottling! Bottling = Destruction.
Need to remember who I am and what I am. Not to be ashamed, embarrassed, or afraid.
I can do this.
We got this.
