spent the first 13 years of my life in California, i have spent many nights in the redwoods,( usually hidding) but i still agree they are soooo beautiful. OK since you know i like horseback ridding you saw the first post, that was a good laugh. its funny how some of the funnest things happened during the worst time of my life. my body is 40-50 years ahead of me in age, my doctors say i am in great health for a 96 year old the problem is i am ( 50 ish)View Thread
when i read other people's post it seem as they are worst off than when they started therapy, i sort of tried it.( i only went twice.) it seems the first thing they want is to medicate you, which is fine for people who are open to that. because of my past and being forced by my abuser to take medication i cant (wont) go down that path. i want to quite sh, but right now it is my main copping device, i am reading about DBT and trying to use new skills two. i don't think taping into my emotion would be a good thing, my best copping skill is to dissociate from them, yes this leaves me empty and i have to pretend or create the appearance of feeling for the outside world, but it has worked for 40 years so maybe that is just what it is. so am i looser if i chose to just survive they world?View Thread
