NAMI Connection Groups and Counseling

18 Mar

I had two appointments on Friday, practically back to back, one at 1:30 with the therapist and then one at 3pm with my case manager.  I had talked about going to these NAMI Connection support groups in anticipation for leading my own at the college campus I go to.  The thing is I can relate to a lot of people and give suggestions or advice; like in my last blog I was talking about the PTSD and Prazosin.  I’ve also mentioned ways to cope with self-harm and voices/psychosis.  Going through this process has shown me two things.  One I had/have a huge variety of problems and two I am way better than I once was.  Of course I tend to focus on number one, but my case manger was trying to get me to focus on the second one.  She wants me to see all the progress and accomplishments I have made.  In one sense I know I’ve done a lot of work and endured a bunch of shit to get where I am today, but still I don’t acknowledge it as something I did.
