Getting to a more positive place

It's been a bumpy few days but since being free of medication I'm slowly getting to a better place . Today is the most consistent day I have had in a very long time and dare I say it actually felt happy , talkative and outgoing . Been getting lots of fresh air and spending time with my other half in public places which is a good step forward too . I'm looking to the future for the first time and no more suicidal thoughts which I have had since my teens . Having seen so many different psychiatrists over a short space of time has helped no end . I feel I can live a full life so i'm striving foward . Going to see the CPN for the first time in a fews and going to be signingnup for a lecture course on anxiety will be signing up to a CBT therapy group immersing myself with literature . Along with healthy living and the support of some great family and friends i'm getting my life back .

Hi SS ! Yep I know exactly what you mean it's treading water the whole time :( Not in a bad place today mood has not dropped for a few days now which is a relief it's nice to have a respite from the crashing through the floor moods just hope it holds . It's sheer willpower holding me together at the moment until I get more psychiatry help and hope I get a space on the Stress control classes/lectures too sounds really interesting .:hug5:

Thank you for asking...I have had two good consecutive days. Learning what my diagnosis is has really helped me be hopeful. Doing research on borderline personalities has opened my eyes to why I do the things I do. Now my therapist has a plan of action to go on to help me. So excited to know there's hope. You continue to do well...so happy for you!!!!

I am on a waiting list for CBT too but I don't hold put much hope. I'm too stubborn and cling onto my anger to much for silly techniques to work on me.
Sorry to bring such negativity to a positive thread :( I am intrigued too to exactly what it entails!! If you beat me there do spill the beans :)

Hi gratefulmomoftwo that really is lovely of you . Glad to hear you have had a good couple of days ! Really pleased you have a diagnosis and that there is a plan of action to help you . Good for you for doing research it really does open your eyes . Happy for you and hope you get to the place you want to be at .


Hi Maybe.shes.a.wildflower ! Not negative at all has been trial and error with me to see what works and what does not . They picked up on the fact I like talking and learning so going to see if those strategies work . Will let you know about CBT if my appointments first . They tried me on a site called mood juice I thought it was a load of rubbish never took to it .

Hope you are both ok ?! Lots of love and hugs xxxxx

I dont like talking about me but my Dr thinks its a good idea I do but the telephone appointment I had with psychiatrist said I'd benefit from CBT more as it'll teach me to not be so anger, but I am ever the cynic but it can't hurt to try right?
I like to learn things that interest me but my mind is so busy I struggle to take anything in or read long writing if that makes sense? The psychiatrist send some reading material I read abit and gave up and told her, probably pissed her off as she prob think I didn't try. I can't do group sessions either as there's nothing worse for me stànding in front of people and talking with all their eyes gawking at me :/
Believe it or not I'm actually in a fair mood today I just have this dark cloud that follows me everywhere tho but yes please keep me updated!! :)
You can tell my brains a messy place it always takes me so many words to say nothing at all.:redface:
