Today, i found that I am putting 100% into everything, i know i probably won't achieve it but I have high hopes for myself and my recovery. I made myself a new routine, and am doing well with it, but i usually struggle with it maybe 6 months to a year later.
i also feel i lost my confidence, when ever i isolate myself i also lose confidence in who i am, even to talk out loud.
i feel that dealing with my dissociation, I put 100% of my effort to stay here, in reality, but boredom, and forgetfulness usually pulls me back.
Today I did pretty well, I found that i was in reality and not stuck in mine or another person's mind...Weird, that I posted that but, that's what i think and that's okay.
i did well, i didn't have many weird thoughts but at times felt like i couldn't cope with reality, but I can, I take a deep breath, try to relax, then go on with it.

It sounds as though you're doing really well, which is great to hear.

You will get days when things are harder than others, we all do but, hopefully, you will just see them as blips and not permanent setbacks.

I wish you well on your recovery and progress.
