Today 8/13/15

13 Aug

I’m feeling a little less overwhelmed today.  Still tired, I think a cross from an intense counseling session and having my period.  My case manager wants me to focus on specific parts of things I’m dealing with instead of the big picture.  I understand that but it’s hard because they are all painful and have their own intense emotions attached.  But when I look at the big picture I get incredibly anxious, overwhelmed, and suicidal so I guess it makes sense.  I kind of decided on working with the realization that 20 something’s friend is going to move in about a year.  I started crying hysterically and she worked on grounding me which took probably 5-10 minutes.  I tell her I try to fill out the observe/describe emotion DBT worksheets but the intensity didn’t go down at all.  She talked about having to be in the moment with the feelings as much as you can; because when you avoid them they will just come back stronger next time their triggered.  That I agree with.  I read her my blog about wanting someone to comfort me and again it was reinforced that I need to learn how to do that for myself.  I feel like I’m barely surviving and just treading water most days, how in the hell am I suppose to comfort myself when I’m already struggling to just do the basics.  Speaking of, I brushed my teeth today- that’s an accomplishment.

      I’m horrible about it! Lil sis is a dental assistant so I’m always getting reprimanded

    So true about staying with the feelings in the moment so they don’t come back even more intense… I’m also working on that.
    And yay too for brushing your teeth!!
    Hugs

      Thanks. Yeah it’s hard to do it but much worse later so I keep trying to tell myself that.
