I do find that with all reading up on this alot of things are making allot more sense. I have dealt with alot of other issues as well, depression, ptsd, maladaptive coping (porn addiction), ADD. Now with all these "dealt" with this comes up and its yet another thing is very disheartening but without the tools I learned in dealing with those I probably couldn't be in this place of understanding and healing myself of this diagnosis. With all that going on I dont want to over "cure" myself which isn't healthy I am wanting to know how other people with this cope or feel about it
I wasn't suggesting that it might not be a problem for you to get used to.
If you don't expect it and you have other stuff to deal with (ptsd, depression, ...) it can takes a while to digest it.
I know therapists recommend cbt and psychotherapy.
However, even activities that burn energy can help vent possible anger (I find pushups and gym in general helps) as well as distracting you from unhealthy thoughts and behaviors for a while.
Your personality is what it is, and what you've said is right, you don't have to 'over cure' everything about yourself, but finding a healthy way to live with it.
I'm trying to convince myself that what I do on the spur of the moment would have consequences in my life, as well as getting used to thinking about something else as soon as.
Hope this helps
