In Topic: Body pale and weak

It should not be the direct result of DP, imo, but rather the outcome of other things caused by DP, such as less motivation for outdoor activities, exercise and such. However, if you feel that is not your case, perhaps it would be worth checking the hormones and the complete blood count, of course in consultation with medical professional.

Take care,

A.


In Topic: It's been awhile

Hi Findmywayhome,

 

I remember your posts:) You are hyper-analytical and introspective, as most people around here, and for most part, as far as I can remember, your observations were correct.

 

There is perhaps one thing that you may have not yet taken into account - I know it took me a while unitl I understood that - and that is the dynamics of illness/recovery, as there can be a pattern in the way you are processing things.

 

I am at a good place rn, but it has been a fierce struggle, since the end of 2016. I would go to therapy, get better, live my life for a while (a year and a half), and get worse again. Then the same thing again: 6 months therapy, get better, live my life (approximately a year and a half, haha), and get worse. And now, I am at the end of the thirds 6-month therapy, it helped a lot. However, the difference now, that I know what I am dealing with, is that I can expect to deal with some of it again. I think that my mind has a way of activelly "attacking"  the issues that need to be dealt with in therapy, and it can go on for approximately six months, but then it needs time to integrate all that, recuperate, and then it comes back with: hey, guess what, lol? here's the new topic/problem to deal with, lol!

 

But that is ok. I appreciate all that I have done for myself in the meantime, and I respect my struggle. I recognize how difficult it was, and I do not compare myself to some unattainable standard. I am setting the standard for myself.

 

Sure, this may not be the case with you, but perhaps it is worth considering how our inner capacities for recovery work, and if there are some intervals that you can recognize as stages in your recovery.

 

Good luck, and take care,

A.


In Topic: What I Am Thankful For.

02 April 2021 - 05:30 AM

I am thankful for/to myself, for being the only person I could rely on for as long as I lived, for keeping me safe, and sheltering my body and my mind when I was in great peril of losing it all. And I am thankful to myself - again - for being able to finally distinguish between learned behaviour and authentic feelings, to see things for what they really are and to act ccordingly, to cut ties with people who called themselves family and friends, but did not act as such. I am a really big fan of me, and if it wasn't for covid19, I would unironically throw a really big party to show my appreciation for myself.

Hi, I can't tell you what is going on with you, but I can relate to some of the symptoms, and I can tell you that no matter how hard or impossible to heal it all may seem rn, it is absolutely possible to get better! Some of us will have the tendency to obsess and overthink, and to dissociate so much as to skip the bus stop, and do things we don't remember doing afterwards, or not do things we were supposed to...but...it can get better. Well done for contacting your psychiatrist, I hope they will get back soon, so you can plan your recovery.

Cheers!

In Topic: Porn and addiction

@Forestx5, I deleted your post on the previous thread for the reasons you stated here, lol, but I think it is very cool of you to come back and explain, instead of dropping the subject altogether. And you also offered an interesting content here, so the gain is double, I'd say:)

 

I would like to take some responsibility for killing that thread too, as I reacted to one thing (masturbation as such), and then it turned out to be something else (porn addiction).

 

Anyway, thanks for starting this new thread on another important subject.

 

Cheers!

A.
