yes bonnie i think kate te is right. Also in cbt therapy they say there is the mind reading trick............forecasting you know how and/or what someone is thinking going to say etc. You don't know unless you check it out by asking. Always check the evidence of your thinking first before presuming ok. I t will save you lots of grief.View Thread
beej i'm so glad your new t called! and especially that it did help. comm on weds! i'm glad that you found us here again. I'm hoping the reason you haven't been here for a while is that you've been doing better? Keep on commin back if it helps. franView Thread
im really having a hard mondy with so much work to do and its taken me 3 hours to pay 3 bills argh! i had a t call me but she couldn't chat argh! i don't know if my reg t will call or not i just wanna cry and bite myself and you know what else! i'm glad my neighboor is coming down and we're going to have coffee just wat i need for more jitters!
Hi beej I think calling the crisis line they gave you is a good idea. Have you tried distractions? going for a walk doing something you enjoy eating one of your favorite foods and just really enjoying it
listening to music is one of my favorite things that helps me which i will be doing as soon as i write my own distressing post
i'm trying to listen to myself and get some idea about it I have a God that I also talk to...........i just rec'd a phone call and my neighboor is coming down for coffee. my husband is arriving and in good time cuz i'm so shaky i can b arely stand it The restlessness can be helped by doing exercise if you can do it. I can't so that leaves it out for me!
have you ever done dbtselfhelp.com you don't need to know dbt to be able to utilize this website! its very good and i'm headed there right now!View Thread
Bonnie Gopd morning! You have been thru so much torture! I know my dad was like what you describe but once i left it was better. I learned to be a clown not literally but with my children. I made them laugh sometimes but a lot of the time spent in depression too and terror from all the past and then life happend an dit was ugly but i don't think my existence compares to yours.
You had it unenduring yet you did endure! I commend you and applaud you for that!
I agree with dd. If you feel you're not ready for a chummy relationship then by all means just tell her "I have trust issues. I'd like to talk to you online perhaps or I'd like to exchange emails. If you think you perhaps one day might like this person as a friend then she will have to stick with ya bonnie.
I believe that honesty in relationships is the best policy. With that said There is also such a thing of how you say it. I've been taught to always start with I feel.........instead of saying you are........that way you don't put them on the defense and you take ownership of the issue!
huggers and hope this works out for you on whatever level you want it to.
