Thanks for the feedback. Janine, I totally understand what you said to a "t". I just wanted to give some vivid examples. I just wish there was an easier way out!!!! :wink:
:roll: I didn't say THE focal point, I said A focal point. It needs to get more attention than it does. That's all I meant.SoulBrotha said:oh & yeah DP really needs to be the focal point of the medical world, instead of AIDS, CANCER, & other diseases of that nature........
I guess I just don't know how to NOT focus on me and the way I feel. Cause my voice sounds weird regardless. And its almost like my DP is an automatic response to changes like I mentioned in my original post in this thread. I kinna just happens. And I don't know how to make it not "just happen"! Make sense?JanineBaker said:I am telling you SO much important stuff here, guys...and 99 per cent of you will not take it in...because in the words of my analyst "everyone who walks through these doors wants to feel better...but not one of them wants to change."
Honestly Janine, you amaze more and more each time. You hit the nail right on the head. I will continue to talk these things out. But you are absolutely correct, I've lived by a recipe and I expect that to lead to perfection and each day I am slowly learning that that is not the case. I know one day I will find myself and Janine, when I do, I have you to thank!JanineBaker said:Also, Kelson...you wrote awhile back in a post about your life experiences. You wrote that you have tried to be good, to be a good son, to be what your parents wanted, etc...you are describing someone who has tried to live by a recipe - as if BEING GOOD and being obedient means that good things will HAPPEN to you. Utterly untrue.
You haven't found out who YOU are because you've spent your life trying to be what someone else tells you to be.
THAT is the stuff to talk about in therapy.
That is going to be the key to your freedom from symptoms....not delving and obsessing about the symptoms themselves.
