  1. For too long, I was doing horribly. Multiple hospitalizations, mostly for PTSD and bipolar depression. Well a few weeks ago I started therapy with a great therapist that accepts medicaid. Her office has a giant window that looks over Lake Michigan and that almost makes me happier than the therapy itself. Well anyways, we've been doing standard talk therapy and CBT and the more I talk, the more my issues seem less important. The arguments with family, the anger at my landlord, etc. They just seem less important and don't bother me anymore.I haven't been to a therapist in a year and a half becau
  2. Perceiving value in your life is not a thought form of perception (awareness) at all. Rather, it is an emotional awareness. In other words, our emotions do not have some sort of mind control effect on us where they force us to perceive, through our thinking, our lives being good or bad to us. It is purely the emotions themselves that allow us to see values in our lives. Emotions are actually a sense like sight. They allow us to see the values that things and situations hold in our lives. It is only our positive emotions that allow us to see the positive qualities of life (i.e. the good values)
  3. Hi there, I'm new on Crazyboards but have benefited as a visitor from many a post. I have a rather unusual request/question. I have sleep anxiety like nobody's business. What I mean by this is that I worry/obsess that I won't get enough sleep AND if I wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep I get out-of-control anxiety and then, of course, can't fall back to sleep. I sweat, get heart palpitations, GI issues, you name it. And the horrible thing is, these symptoms go into the next day and then usually continue into the next night. The thing is, before all this ha
  4. Most people who experience panic attacks only have a few per day or a few every other day. This is because panic is caused by a perceived threat (either real or irrational) which means that these people only perceive a threat every once in a while and they have control over their panic overall. However, there are very severe cases like me in which the perceived threat is constant which causes constant recurring panic attacks. These people like me have no control over this horrifying experience no matter what they tell themselves and no matter what relaxation techniques they use. Peopl
  5. Around 8 months ago, my psychiatrist decided that I might benefit from CBT for my SZA and AsPD. I'd had a worsening of symptoms around four years previous that earlier pdoc's had attempted to treat with meds, but had met with limited success. Anyway, finally got with the new pdoc who was the first to suggest therapy and on to the waiting list I went. Fast forward to last Friday and I receive a text message from an NHS therapist saying they will call me today for a review and find out how they can best help. "The wait is finally coming to an end" I thought. Let's see what they have to say.
  6. Do you resist it and do you know why? Or, why don't you resist it? I resist it, but I'm not really sure I know why. Am I just being a jerk? I don't resist meds at all and get a lot out of my individual and group therapy. My tdoc is very into CBT and after just a few sessions of getting to know me, he dove right into the work of it. I resisted right from the start, but kinda got into it, did the work for a while but mostly because I knew I needed help of any kind. I researched it online and thought a lot about my resistance. He seems to have just given up after I said that I didn't real
  7. Does anyone have any experience with the dbt or cbt? Does it help? Can it be a realistic alternative to meds?
  8. Just wondering has anyone been in a CBT group, aimed specifically for people with Bipolar. I was referred to the group by a community psych nurse who knows me well. There will be 8 people in the group and it will last 6 weeks. The therapist is a psych nurse and also qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. Not too sure how the Group CBT will work and a bit anxious about it * Mods :Not too sure if this should be in the therapy section or the bipolar section, so feel free to move it to appropriate place
  9. Has anyone been able to go beyond the periodic med management and receive such services as cognitive behavioral therapy while on Medicare?
  10. Background info that may help frame why I have certain questions: I don't have an official BPD Dx and p/tdoc isn't wild about applying labels to anything. On paper, I still essentially have no Dx (not even the recurrent depression and anxiety I have meds for) even though I've been seeking professional help for nearly 8 years. And all 4 d&tdocs I have worked with for decent amounts of time have deliberately avoided putting formal Dx's in my files. I didn't ask for that, they just all went in that direction. Its not because they think nothing is wrong with me. They all say/said tha
  11. Over in the Mystifying Narratives and Trends thread, the OP decided to make it super-combative and angry and cranky and whatever while also bitching about CBT. That's not my deal here. My deal is, plain and simple: CBT is billed as the evidence-based therapy. (I'm not even going to attempt to qualify that, just read this page about evidence on the National Association of Cognitive Behavioral Therapists website that effectively claims CBT is the ONLY evidence-based therapy, if you don't believe me.) Not only that, but it's supposed to work! Fast! Work fast to cure your MI! This isn'
  12. More specifically, I got told there was nothing they could do for me ever. So, today I had the second session of a two-part assessment with the psychology department in my CMHT. What was meant to happen - so I was told - was that they would assess me, then they would collate the information from this assessment with the info from my assessment with the eating disorder team, and then the team at the CMHT would offer me therapy. I made this vow before I started these assessments that this time I was going to make it work. Because I can't keep dropping out of therapy over and over again, or
  13. Hey everyone. I've been diagnosed with Bipolar I. I also have ADD and slight anxiety. I was fired from my 5 1/2 year job in Dec. First time ever in my 44 years of life being fired. In July I was fired from my new job. Collecting unemployment both times... so I am at a crossroads in my life. After being fired twice from a field I have 14 years experience in, but don't really enjoy anyway, I am wondering what career I'll pursue from here. In 2009 I began getting mental health help and was diagnosed. Following that I found myself in an abusive relationship. Shortly after that I was put into
