What you say is not true - you are a great member of this community. You don't offend people and you don't have to ask for forgiveness - we all have our problems and ways of dealing with them (some of which have brought us together here).
Don't fade away - I was touched you put a message up asking if I was alright so thank you for that. that was an action of a kind and thoughtful person - YOU!
Take all the time you need, focus on your skills and putting them into practice in every day life. Be honest with your T and come here whenever you need to.View Thread
glad you doing dbt - what skills you working on right now?
I have nearly finished a years worth of group skills sessions. yes its hard but it does become more natural with time. I don't know about you but I found lots of it makes so much sense.
have a horrid cold to contend with as well now and there have been far too many @£$%)*&(^( idiots at work that I could have well done without. Was in tears earlier but managed to get through the shift.
I have to dash to work right now but didn't want you to think nobody had read your post. Will put a longer reply up in the next couple of days - really really busy atm and trying to hold it all together.
Hope you ok tonight I don't know how it works in the States (I am guessing you are there - please correct me if I am wrong) but here in the uk you are offered CPA's (Care Plan Assesments) where people from each team you are involved with come together, with you, to discuss treatment and work together to get the best combination. At my last one I had 2 psychiatrists from different areas, my care co-ordinater and my community psychiatric nurse as well as me.
Sounds like your dr and t are thinking in different terms. A t will possibly have a longer term objective than a dr who may only look at the imediate symptoms and medicating to deal with them.
I have found being straight with them and saying I don't understand cause Dr X told me something different can help. depending on the response you can always ask them to speak to each other. (although I don't know how that works with the US heath system)
Not sure if what I have just written is any help at all.View Thread
